HC Series From 10 to 25 kN

While the HA and HB models are floor-standing, allowing equipment assembly at an optimum operating height, the HC models (10 to 25 kN) are table-top models. They can be positioned on a workbench, for example. A concrete base can optionally be supplied as a support. With all HC models the actuator is positioned above the test area, which is equipped with a T-slotted platform.

Advantages & features

  • 2-column frame for dynamic tests up to 25kN.
  • Testing actuator located in upper crosshead.
  • Suitable for 10 kN and 25 kN axial actuators.
  • Suitable for combined tensile and compression/torsion actuator with maximum torque of 250 Nm.
  • Hard-chromed T-slotted platform and columns for tests in corrosive media.
  • The entire test, together with set-up and control of automatic extensometers and specimen grips, is run via the display-equipped remote control unit.
  • Wide accessory range: temperature chamber, compression platens, specimen grips, flexure test kit etc.
  • Optional hydraulic adjustment for easy positioning of upper crosshead.
  • Safety housing for compliance with CE Machinery Directive depending on application.

New fatigue testing machine for the University of Freiburg

At the Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering (INATECH) at the Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg, engineering solutions are sought in the context of current challenges in sustainable development. The main areas of focus currently include sustainable materials, energy systems and the resilience of technical systems. In the context of mechanical materials testing, INATECH uses a servohydraulic testing machine from ZwickRoell for its research work.
